A Cognitive Summer Project For UTC Students

20 hours ago

Here on our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - Prof. Jill Shelton teaches a class on “The Psychology of Aging.”

Last summer, her students volunteered to work in facilities for aging residents.

That’s not possible now due to the coronavirus - so for the class project this summer, her students created activity kits with games and puzzles to spur cognitive stimulation - delivering the kits to Summit View Senior Community at the base of Signal Mountain.
